ODESSA - It's been under construction for over a year, but the new interchange at JBS Parkway and Highway 80 will be opened to traffic on Thursday morning.

There will still be some work left to do, but the lights will be turned on and the barricades and barrels will removed.

Contactors will still be putting the finishing touches on the median east of the interchange and there is still some landscaping to do.

The speed limit is going to stay 45 miles an hour until the workers clear out completely.

The total cost for the project, almost 24 million dollars.
